The color of the watch band: goldVerified Purchase
First of all, it's a Seiko. That's a name with a well-earned reputation. It's a classy, wear-anywhere watch. This is a solar watch, something Seiko has been manufacturing since 1977, long before Citizen started pushing its "eco-drive" watches (my wife has one of those, by the way, so I'm not knocking them). The Amazon price is half what my local store charges. The watch is easy enough to set up; being quartz, it keeps perfect time, even if it's not a "chronograph." The first couple of days, as it's storing up a long-term charge, the second hand will move two seconds at a clip to let you know it's still charging. When it goes second by second, it's fully charged. I had to shorten the wristband myself, which is simple, but it's still challenging to actually execute. I used a thumbtack to push in the pins - it takes some pressure to remove them (in the direction of the arrow on the inside of the band). I love the push-button lock on the wristband; it's very flexible, so it lies flat when you take the watch off. The day-date window is legible; it couldn't be larger without enlarging the watch itself, which wouldn't be good. I like the size and the style; it's not obvious on my wrist - like I said, it's classy. The crystal is hardened so it's scratch-resistant, as well as water-resistant. It's relatively thin so it doesn't bulge out from my wrist. It's much lighter and thinner than my old Pulsar (Seiko's economy line). Bottom line: I'm delighted with it.

This watch has met my expectations do far. It is comfortable, easy to take off and put on. It's thin which met my major requirement plus the solar feature insures correct time without worrying batteries. The price was right!

The color of the watch band: goldVerified Purchase
The champagne color is a beautiful soft gold color. I was really happy to see that there is far less light reflection (practically none) off the champagne color background than there is off my 15-20 year old gold colored Seiko watch.
I had originally bought the Seiko Men's SNE044 Gold Tone Solar Black Dial Watch, but I returned it after looking at it for two days. I hated the reflection of the light off of the black background. The reflected light was a medium gray color. It looked awful and it made it difficult to see the time on the watch. I am really happy with my new Seiko Men's SNE036 Gold Tone Solar Champagne Dial Watch.

Excellent watch that keeps perfect time. My only quibble is that I had to take it to a local jeweler to adjust the band since it takes a fair amount of expertise and the right tools (not to mention more patience than I have) to adjust the band, but that's true of many watch bands.

This is a beautiful watch. Can not say enough good things about it. Comfortable, stylish, wonderful time piece. Great value for the price.

It is a very nice watch in appearance and accuracy of time-keeping. But after a little more than 2 months of normal wear, the finish is wearing off the bracelet. Now I'm going to have to deal with making a warranty claim with Seiko. Hopefully they will honor the 3 year warranty on a watch sold by Amazon.

The color of the watch band: goldVerified Purchase
i purchased this watch a few months ago and received it quickly and in good condition. i like the watch a lot, looks very dressy.
one problem, if you have a larger wrist do not buy this watch. this watch is suitable only for men with small hands and a skinny wrist.
i e-mailed the seller asking for at least 3 additional links, to which they complied after about 3 weeks passed and several more reminder e-mails.
the only problem is the additional links are the wrong ones, they are for an older type seiko, i know this because i have several older seiko watches. i am dissapointed as i can not wear this watch as i can just barely get it over my hand and when i close the clasp it cut off the blood supply to my hand. the seller should have paid closer attention in supplying the correct links.
am dissapointed and angry with this seller, time for watches.

The watch itself is gorgeous, which is why I'm so disappointed it doesn't work properly. The nob for setting the day of the week doesn't function consistently. I finally got it set and the day still changes to spanish sometimes or 'sticks' on a day. Amazon wont allow and exchange because it is out of stock. Well not really but the "cyber monday" deal I got for it is apparently. I cant decide if its worth returning and paying another $20 ~ 30 more to have one that works properly. Too bad I can't get a replacement. Man, the watch looks great though.

Watch is great however the band brass color rubs off in a matter of days. I hope the replacement watch band will not rub off quickly. Seiko solar watch looks great taking into account the price I paid.

I've owned Seiko's before and they are as their reputation supports, an excellent watch. I have just a small to medium problem however. The face of the watch is not quite as large in diameter that I had hoped. It keeps perfect time. But, one other thing - it will require a battery change at some point. Even the instruction book talks about that. It is SOLAR. But, the rechargeable battery is not forever. And, Seiko says a jeweler will have to change it when it eventually needs changing and it will cost more than just an ordinary battery change.
